Mac OS X Yesterday we reported that Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, due for release coming Friday, contained some form of malware and/or virus protection. Since the scope of this protective measure was not yet known - nor if it even existed at all - I thought it would be best to write another post detailing that yes, it's real, and yes, it's all relatively crude.

If you purchase AppleCare you can (or could, i'm not sure) download McAfee's Virex for free from Apple. In a sense they always encouraged installing virus protection, and so can you if you feel it's necessary.

Windows doesn't (yet) come with built-in virus protection, and Windows customers are very well trained to purchase a protection suite with each PC.
